So I had my surgery back in July. I anticipated the worst after that sucker came out, but things actually went really smoothly for me. I ate sushi on day three after the surgery and pizza the same week. Aside from random discomfort in my scars and some changes to “normal” for my body, things have gone pretty smoothly.
Higher fat content meals are bothering me more lately. I’m gassier and I have rare, occasional heartburn (something I’ve been blessed to have maybe once a year before now.) If I skip meals, I get diarrhea. It’s–interesting? weird?–to see how my digestive system has changed in the months after my surgery. I have to graze. I do have to watch the fat content of my meals, though it only seems to matter if it gets astronomical. My migraines haven’t stopped, but my diarrhea/indigestion symptoms with that have almost totally disappeared (I still can’t eat anything before or during a migraine, but it’s been a world of difference.)
It’s still the best money I’ve ever spend, though I’m still paying for it (ugh, need to do that today.) But my experience? Still solidly positive, despite the changes it’s made to my routine.
